Stop the anti-union Tax Office

Organise, organise, organise to stop the ruling class lackeys in charge of the ATO smashing unions in the workplace.

Saturday’s socialist speak out

The G20 is meeting to decide how to divide up the world. The US is reasserting itself as the dominant power in the region and encircling China. Australia’s Labor Party and its so-called ‘left’ have jumped into bed with US imperialism in its latest high stake game of putting China back in the box. A […]

Talking to the Taliban: who’s under pressure now?

Have your say – Saturday’s socialist speak out

The Democrats have been routed in the US mid-term elections. Ruling class ‘fakir of change’ Barack Obama is making ruling class moron Sarah Palin look good. Much as Clinton’s legacy did for George W Bush. The US economy could tank again, while unemployment is stalled at just under ten percent. but the US banks are […]
